I haven’t but I wouldn’t imagine the flight itself to be problematic and babies that age are small, portable and generally love a cuddle. Particularly if breastfeeding so they can be sucking for take off/ landing when the pressures change and no need for faffing with bottles. Passports can take a while to come though and unless completely necessary I would be happier taking a baby on a plane after at least the first set of immunisations.

"sucking for take off/ landing " - totally agree. My mum took me on the plane when I was young. That time baby tickets were almost free (babies didn't require sits).

Check your destination. If you go abroad without 2d parent they might ask for the permission letter. And if you have different last name prepare to have extra paperwork proving the baby is yours.

if you feed at take off should sleep most of flight at least two hours. maybe fuss for half hour then feed before landing. people expect babies to cry. don't be nervous about this
